About the project

“A combination of creative design and well executed brickwork”

Like all of the design work the concept is focused on the local, the inherent nature of choosing local; consultants; suppliers and labour is arguably the most sustainable method for designing a new build. Taking local forms, traditions, crafts, mixing them with innovative systems and reworking in a contemporary way is a key part of the work and is present in the design of Chelwood. The brick used is a handmade charnwood Henley red and the design has celebrated in a number of ways.
